On the contrary. What you are feeling isn't unfairness, but that the laws didn't benefit you.

But as I mentioned, "fair" is by its very nature unpleasant. You can never "win" in a fair scenario. Fair is when everyone loses.

Laws are created to try to generate fairness, flawed as they were. Because if you think absence of law is fair, you haven't been to a lawless land.
